Deputy President, Cyril Ramaphosa says students have a role to play in rescuing the country from the current challenges it faces.

Ramaphosa has been speaking with academics and students at Rhodes University in Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape.

He says students have solutions to the country's challenges such as allegations of State Capture and downgrading of the country to Junk status.

“There are quite a number of things that we are doing in government that are derailing the democratic project that you bought into so much. There are stories that there's capture, capture of certain elements of government, certain people have been captured. You as students, you as people of the future you must free us. You must free this country from that capture.”

Meanwhile, Ramaphosa has said he's going to take advice from mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and address the issue of Marikana tragedy.

He also apologised about the language he used at the time, but says it was to prevent more killings after ten had been hacked. He is in Grahamstown where he addressed students and academics at Rhodes University.
